Kurt Knepper is a criminal defense and employment / wrongful termination attorney, dedicated to providing attentive and aggressive representation to persons who have been criminally accused, as well as representing California workers and small businesses in a wide range of employment related issues and claims, and wrongful termination cases against private and public employers.
California criminal law is complicated. Many criminal arrests initiate more than one case and any Orange County Area criminal case requires multiple court appearances. Additionally, anyone arrested in California who holds a professional license (attorneys, physicians, nurses, pilots, stock brokers, teachers, or other professionals) or security clearances (police officers, fire fighters, government employees or government contractors) are at risk of having the agency which issued the professional license or security clearance initiate yet another case which may impact their license or one or more job critical certifications to practice their profession. As well, anyone owning a firearm or required to carry a firearm as part of their professional responsibilities will be barred from possessing any handgun, rifle or shotgun if they are convicted of certain criminal charges.
California has some of the strictest laws in the country regarding drunk driving (DUI or Driving Under the Influence of alcohol or drugs). Prompt action can have a significant impact on a successful defense. For example, there is a 10-day deadline for calling the California DMV to request a hearing on your license suspension and to get an extension of your temporary license. We understand the urgency and importance of your DUI case, therefore we normally order your police report and set up your DMV hearing the same day you hire us. This goes a long way with our clients, who are normally anxious to see the report, which contains the police accusations and blood results. We regularly appear in court on our clients' behalf, thus saving them valuable work time, not to mention embarrassment. We vigorously defend all of our clients.
California employment law is complicated. Our firm focuses on such workplace issues as wrongful termination, discrimination, defamation of character / false accusations at workplace, disability rights at workplace under ADA and FEHA and disability discrimination, harassment, whistleblower retaliation, failure to pay wages and overtime, and other civil rights violations at the workplace. We distinguish ourselves by candidly advising our clients not only on the legal merits of the case or a particular situation but also on the practical aspects of proceeding the best way under their unique circumstances, which is often just as important or even more important than just focusing on the legal merits of their claims.
